About Boston Rising
Boston Rising is an antipoverty fund. Our mission is to end the cycle of poverty once and for all in Boston by clearing the way for the next Rising Class. We do two things: we mobilize resources and we invest for huge impact.
Investing in Education
A quality education is a key driver for anyone looking to build a better life for him or herself. Among other investment areas, Boston Rising is committed to funding initiatives along an education continuum from cradle to career readiness. Our approach is to invest in the ecosystem of schools in and surrounding Grove Hall, with the objective of strengthening these institutions. At the same time, Boston Rising works to increase access to and choice among outstanding educational opportunities for residents of the neighborhood.
Boston Rising is using this year's marathon as a tool to reach our investment goals in the area of education, benefitting the William Monroe Trotter School, Boston Latin Academy, the Jeremiah E. Burke High School, and the Higgison-Lewis Middle School.
Proceeds from this year's Marathon will:
- Enhance student engagement and learning efficiency through increased access to technology
- Extend library after-school hours
- Provide subsidies for students to attend field trips who would otherwise be unable to pay
- Support the formation of additional student clubs
